Peaceful White Lilies

 

Meeting August 7

 

President Colin had great pleasure welcoming our guest speaker Emma McLerie (Past District Governor Linda McLerie’s daughter) and her fiancé, Tom Hunter, to another Rotary function, Theresa Francis, Olivia’s sister and Sophia Hicks from Stryder Fencing.

Colin was pleased to welcome back Greg James.

He thanked Giovanna for looking after Attendance in Greg’s absence.

 

Tom, Emma and Neil

 

 

Sophia Hicks and Colin

     

 

Sophia heard Colin on ABC 720 talking about the Rotary Charity House.  She was impressed with the project and wanted to assist.  Sophia offered to help us with the fencing and gates to the property.  Unfortunately, these had already been installed but she would be keen to help if the opportunity arose in the future

 

Colin thanked Bev for her recommendation of Bioffice Cleaning Contractors, who are going to do a complete builder’s clean of the Rotary Charity House at no charge.  Another wonderful company!

 

What’s Happening

 

Crowd Funding for the School of St Yared

 

Colin thanked Giovanna for her help in finding a Rotary link to attract Crowd Funding for this project

 

The site is fairly difficult to find but there are over 600 projects being advertised from all over the world.

 

Please click here to access the site.

 

Colin outlined items that will be presented later in the meeting: -

Opera at Twilight, The Global Grant, Family of Rotary, the Employability Seminar and District Conference 2018.

 

 

Guest Speaker             Emma McLerie

‘Wildlife Rehabilitator and

Reptile Relocator’

Neil had great pleasure introducing Emma who shared with us how she has gone from being scared of animals to now having 14 pets and a passion to care for wildlife.

She began her presentation with an amazing video of a wide range of animals that had to be helped in some way.

Emma has worked as a volunteer caring for

sick and injured wildlife for many years.

She is at present a volunteer at Native Arc and also has a stall at the Wellard markets where people can learn about the work she does.

The aim is to release or relocate healthy animals back into their natural habitat.

Emma showed us the equipment used to capture reptiles, in particular.

To finish off her very enlightening talk Emma and Tom took reptiles around the room so they could be viewed at close quarters or even touched!!!!

 

 

Opera at Twilight

Rod and Colin have been working together to decide on a suitable venue.

It was hoped to hold it at Tompkins on Swan but due to cricket fixtures the timing proved too difficult.

Kadidjiny was a contender and issues such as parking and toilets were being looked at.

Selwyn showed Rod and Colin the Lower Bush Court at Murdoch University where they hold their graduations.  The area pictured below would be ideal and there would be no parking or toilet problems.

We would have to provide a stage, sound and lighting.

Selwyn has requested a meeting to make an application for the event to be held there so we hope to have a positive result soon.

Cathy Day and staff at Melville City Council are enthusiastic about the event and are keen to help.

 

 

Global Grant

John brought the members up to date on the progress of the Global Grant.

It has been a long and difficult process but John feels a positive end is in sight.

 

Family of Rotary

Ian reported that Rey will be in hospital for another couple of weeks but is now able to walk some distance.

Unfortunately, Nick is having problems with his feet. 

Trish is still seeing a specialist but feels she is improving.

 

Employability Seminar

Jeff, Bev, Patricia, Martin and Neil attended the first session of this project that dealt with preparing resumes.  The Murdoch students did a marvellous job.  The next session will be in two weeks.  Once Jeff knows what the 8 top selected careers are he will ask for volunteers to help.

Love in a Shoe Box

Jim is assisting Nancy Bray who co-ordinates the “Love in a Shoe Box” project.  Members are asked to put items into the boxes to suit either a boy or girl of a certain age.

All the information is in the accompanying booklet.

Each year the members are very generous and supportive of this project that brings a lot of joy and happiness to children who have very little.

Please remember to bring the boxes to a Rotary meeting soon.

Well done Rotary Club of Attadale

John was delighted to read an email from his guest of last week, Dr Kelly Botha.  She wanted to thank John and the members for a very enjoyable meeting and for everyone making her feel so welcome.

 

Fines

It was great to have Greg back.  He was in sparkling form, fining numerous people, much to the amusement of everyone, including those who were fined.

 

 

Holly

 

Martin was delighted to share with members pictures of his granddaughter, Holly, on her second birthday.

 

 

 

Olivia was very proud to share this picture of her father who sang the National Anthem at Mets Stadium live on Faith Day, August 5th before an absolutely huge crowd.

ROTARY CHARITY HOUSE OPEN

 

A number of members have indicated that they are keen to have a look over the Rotary Charity House so we have organized a house open between 11.00am and 12.00 on Saturday, August 19th.  Members will get a chance to have a good look over this major project and appreciate the work of the builders and the contributions of our wonderful sponsors. 

Following the inspection those who feel inclined are invited to the Quarie Bar and Brasserie at 12.00 for lunch and fellowship.  The Quarie Bar and Brasserie is at 2 MacQuarie Boulevard, Hammond Park.
